NYC Millionaire Pharma Exec Convicted Of Killing 8-Year-Old Autistic Son Found Dead After Supreme Court Revoked Bail


Gigi Jordan – the million mom who murdered her 8-year-old autistic son in a Manhattan hotel room – was found dead Friday morning in a Brooklyn home where she had been renting, her attorney and law enforcement sources confirmed.

Jordan’s bail had just been ordered revoked by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor a day earlier amid ongoing questions and legal fights over whether she could remain out on bail as she sought a new trial.

The 62-year-old pharma millionaire had admitted to plunging a lethal dose of medications down her son’s throat with a syringe in a hotel room in 2010. She then ingested multiple medications herself and emailed a relative, who alerted authorities.

Jordan claimed at her trial that she had decided to kill herself and her son, Jude Mirra, because she believed that one of her ex-husbands was planning to have her killed and that without her, the boy would fall under the care of her other ex-husband and would be sexually abused. Both men denied her allegations against them.

Jordan was convicted of manslaughter in November 2014 and sentenced to 18 years in prison.

One of her attorneys, Norman Siegel, confirmed Jordan’s death saying it “is unbelievably sad.” Appeals were ongoing, he added, and in his view, Jordan “… had a lot still to contribute to society.”

Sources said Jordan was found dead Friday around 12:05 a.m. An NYPD spokesperson declined to comment except to confirm an ongoing death investigation linked to the Brooklyn residence.

Several officials said suicide was possible, given Jordan’s bail being revoked and that she was found dead in a bathtub with a note nearby. But Siegel said his client sounded in good spirits hours earlier when the two spoke by phone.

The medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
